Please note:
Due to the beautiful and quiet rural location, Pen Bryn Twrw is located on a single track lane, the lane is a public highway and is tarmacked and there are lots of passing places too allow a good flow of local traffic.

We advise people to bring wellies or working boots as during the wet welsh weather there are times when the site will become muddy.

Due to Pen Bryn Twrw being nestled in the centre of an animal sanctuary, a range of animal calls, including cockerels will be heard, along with the team going about caring for the animals in and around the house. We find this is a beautiful part of the welsh countryside experience.

Whether you want to relax surrounded by nature and the wonderful animals at the Sanctuary, or explore the North Wales area and all it has to offer, Pen Bryn Twrw is the perfect staycation for you! We have several attractions close by including ZipWorld, Betws Y coed, Conwy Castle and many more!
